Pets of the Week

India is 1-year-old Siamese mix (with possibly a little Ragdoll thrown in too). She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. India was rescued from Animal Control. She is unquestionably, one of the sweetest cats to have ever come through the shelter doors. She has a very meek, quiet personality and she loves to be held and cuddled. Though a little bit frightened of their sometimes rowdy behavior, she gets along well with the other cats at the shelter. For anyone looking for a true "lap cat" - India would be the perfect choice. For more information about how to adopt India, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
